Very good!!!

we stopped several times to take pics and play with the rocks, even with the 3 year old pace we did it in under 2h

Awesome trail for a quick hike. The views are rewarding.

Great hike. Good elevation and awesome views of Banff and surrounding area.

First time on Tunnel, great little hike! Dry and busy. Amazing views

Took our 10 month old up in the pack and it was the perfect trail for that. Not overly exerting and great views. Very accessible and well maintained trails.

First time hiking tunnel mountain. It was a Friday evening at 6:30, the sky was clear and very little breeze with a temp of about 12c. It was prefect. Looked out to the east at the mountain range, Bow river and Lake Loiuse golf course. It was less than a hour with quick breaks. There’s a sitting area with two chairs but go further to the rock slab. Beautiful view. Had a nice snack and others took our group picture. The walk down took 25 minutes. Prefect hike.

Finally got to do this one. Nice little hike very accessible and trail is in great condition. Views can't be beat 2 hrs well spend.

States on the board an hour walk. It took us 20 mins. It’s a nice river side walk. Very easy!

A pretty easy trail for anyone who is moderately able-bodied. And I saw plenty of locals climbing up with their dogs. Takes only an hour each way up and back. Currently on today’s date no crampons or micro spikes are needed

Did a 3 day backpack here last year and it was amazing. Probably the best multi day I’ve done thus far. Very tough. Very rewarding.

Not a bad hike by any means, but it was completely overcast and so there wasn’t a great view at all, but I’ll likely do it again and give it another chance.

Great little winter hike - was tough enough for the short distance to keep it interesting. You can certainly do this hike without ice cleats in the winter/spring but we were happy we rented some- they did help.

We went on a Sunday and were surprised at how quiet it was. While we did see others doing the trail it isn't as hectic as other trails in the area. Spikes are recommended as there was a layer of ice under the snow. Views are gorgeous all the way up.

Fun! good warm up!

Great and easy little hike with stunning views. Recommend microspikes during this time of year.

Great hike for today, but it was really icy, so take cleats with you!

Nice canyon , lots of people limited parking

loved this trail easy for kids and great scenery and pics

nice and short hike for our first in Banff, great views along the way and nothing difficult to encounter on the way. cleats made a huge difference because the packed snow trail was a bit slippery without them.

A beautiful pit stop that could be very easily overlooked! A short walk down the hill gets you to the canyon with gorgeous falls. You could make this a 30 minute stop, or carry on exploring the trails along the river.

Great little hike with fantastic views! Short & easy, and seems to be a popular trail as there were lots of people.

Great switchbacks and views!
